In 2016, as part of the SCIAF family, you helped:
- 1,049,000 people to overcome hunger, poverty, war and disease. This includes families and community members who benefit indirectly from our direct support to individuals. For instance, if we help a mother, her children and wider family will benefit.
- 202,000 people with seeds, farm tools and small loans to grow more food and to work themselves out of poverty
- 70,000 people with food, clean water, shelter and medicine in emergencies
By putting your faith into action with SCIAF...
you helped hundreds of thousands of families whose lives have been torn apart by emergencies in 19 countries including South Sudan, Ethiopia, Nepal, Syria, Lebanon and Jordan. You helped families to work
their way out of extreme poverty in some of the world’s poorest countries such as Burundi, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Haiti, Malawi and many more.
Your long term support gave our sisters and brothers the hand up they need to create a better life for themselves. At home, we worked with schools and parishes to raise awareness of the causes of poverty and campaign for change.
Over 6,300 campaign cards urged First Minister Nicola Sturgeon to ensure Scottish businesses help, and not harm poor people, and that Scotland meets its climate change targets.
Over 200 volunteers made your money go further by delivering an amazing 396 talks in schools and parishes, and help with jobs in our office and action in their communities across Scotland.
